Laila is still waiting on official paperwork regarding relocating to Oman, aka “oh-man too soon!”. She is a calm bundle of ambiguous feelings. In the meantime, she is in Oklahoma cross training into open hole services.
Riddle Me This!!!
Typically, training is a fun time to be away from your field duties without being away from Whateberger entirely. This time around, it feels like a distraction away from dealing with moving. I feel alone, away from my family and friends I so badly want to spend time with before being shipped off across the ocean. The distraction is somewhat effective. You dedicated blog followers may remember about a year and a half ago when I was in Oklahoma for initial training and had a friendly rivalry with the open hole class. After sometime, we are all the same…. just Whataberger engineers with all the same skills. I am enjoying my time meeting new co workers from across the globe and learning more about the jobs I could be doing in the future.
Rocky and Bullwinkle, together again
In the brief gaps between absorbing new wireline knowledge, the following questions consume my little mind…. I invite you all into the small, not so cavernous space inside my curly topped head…
* Do my relocation benefits include moving my pet overseas? If so, are pets allowed to stay on a campsite? If the answers are yes, Jerome will love the desert.
* Can Whateberger move my bicycle overseas? I can ride it across the camp from my room to the shop.
* Will I be an exotic American who speaks the tribal language of English?
*When I get back to Houma, I hope I can make it to this concert in Lafayette to round out my childhood dreams.
* If I have one week before I have to leave, could I make a trip out west to visit people…?
